The History of The Knowledge Tree

Fred P. Gattas Company was founded in Memphis, Tennessee, on December 30, 1957. Although there have been changes through the years, the company has remained under the management and ownership of the Gattas family throughout its history.

The company expanded into school supplies and furniture in March of 1994 with the acquisition of Al Graci Educational Service. Knowledge Tree has since expanded further with additional retail outlets, and had the largest catalog operation dedicated to school equipment in the tri-state area. 

The company serves our community through four retail outlets. Two are conveniently located in Tennessee, with stores in Memphis and Cordova. There are also stores in Little Rock, Arkansas and Horn Lake, Mississippi. These stores offer teachers and parents educational materials that make learning fun and effective. The store associates are dedicated to providing friendly assistance and suggestions.

Knowledge Tree prides itself on providing quality products at competitive pricing. Knowledge Tree is your best source for school supplies, curriculum supplements, furniture, office supplies, and toys.
